Hello!

Hello everyone, my name is Jesse and I have a 2002 V Star 1100 Silverado. The previous bike I had was a 1983 Honda Interceptor 750. I got tired of the uncomfortable riding position, so I traded up. I got this bike late last fall with just over 5000 miles on it. I love my V Star and am planning on some long beautiful rides soon.

Thanks!

I'm not sure what pictures you're talking about though. I've been trying to upload a couple, but they aren't showing up. At least not where I can find them. I'll be happy to upload some more pics once I figure out how to do it =D

Hi Jstar,

Oh ok, got it. Maybe you can help me then lol. How in the world do you upload pics on this site? I'm trying to upload pictures into an album, but every time I try the page tries to load for a few minutes and then the browser goes blank. No failure message or anything, just a blank screen. Any help would be appreciated =D

Ok here comes the cavalry of the pic brigade. You can do it 2 ways; small or big. The small pics you post are done this way:
go to the advanced tab and click
on that page you will see a manage attachments button click it
you will have 2 options, the first is from your computer and the other is the big way (later)
Find the pics on your puter and upload.

The big pic way:
Same as above except
Host your pics on a pic hosting site (picassa and the like)
Find the URL and
hit upload.
So there you have it

By the way, welcome to the forum man. You will not find a find a better bunch of folks who like to have fun, talk bike and help each other out than here .

Ride safe and keep it shiny side up.

Thanks Corsair, its nice to have a place where you can ask questions and answer some too

I finally figured out how to get the pictures to work. They were too big of a file so it kept crashing. I found a picture that is a smaller file and it loaded fine. I'll take some more pictures after I finish jetting the carburetors and clean her up. Thanks for the help.

I'm no pic whore, I'm a pic whore connoisseur - or is it a connoisseur of pic whores? Yeah I like that better.

Hello!

Jstar, nice ride for sure.

You mention rejetting. Do you have a new exhaust and intake to go on, or is there some other reason you are rejetting?
